He should be anywhere between 25-40. 47th is just ridiculous.

Rick Nash is higher on the list than Kessel, you don't find that ridiculous?
Nash has size & strength and leadership abilities that Kessel doesn't. He is big, strong and crashes the net fearlessly while scoring as many goals as Kessel does in the process over the past 4 seasons.

Total Goals scored - last 4 seasons (2008-09 to 2011-12)

Rick Nash (40, 33, 32 & 30) = 135 goals total
Phil Kessel (36, 30, 32 & 37) = 135 goals total
